HUDDERSFIELD Town boss Simon Grayson has knocked back reports linking his assistant Glynn Snodin with the managerial vacancy at League I club Doncaster Rovers.

Snodin, 52, is a former player and joint-manager (with younger brother Ian) of the South Yorkshire side, who lost boss Dean Saunders to Wolves last weekend.

Part of a three-man management team at Town along with Ian Miller, he has coached Northern Ireland as well as Carlisle, Scarborough, Charlton, West Ham and Leeds. Snodin came through Doncaster’s youth system and with 309, is the club’s eighth top appearance maker of all time.

As manager, he helped Rovers recover after their relegation from the Football League in 1998.

Brother Ian thinks he would be an ideal choice for the League I club, saying: "He’s been a top coach for many years, but now he’s ready to make the step up as manager.

"If Glynn was interested, and Doncaster wanted him, then Glynn would be a great appointment.He’s obviously played for the club and was joint manager with me when things were at rock-bottom.

"Since then he’s worked with some top players at Charlton and West Ham, and internationally, with Northern Ireland. He’s in his early fifties and he’s got the experience of playing at the highest level."

Grayson, who also worked with Snodin at Leeds, responded: "There has been no contact from Doncaster, and as far as I know, Glynn is happy with his role here."
